Take a zero trust approach to security

Create a flexible and dynamic security policy to control your borderless estate 

Our Approach

As your business evolves to use more cloud services, remote working and BYOD you’re presented with new attack surfaces that need new security measures.

The traditional perimeter security model of ‘trusted inside’ versus ‘untrusted outside’ no longer exists.

It’s no longer easy to see which assets are corporately owned, and today’s distributed workforce makes it harder to know who ‘your’ employees really are. Despite losing control and visibility of your estate, you can’t say no to new initiatives and must work out how to support your future business strategy.

What if your network was based on the premise of: trust no one; authenticate everything? Taking a data-centric approach to security would mean a dynamic, policy-driven model that changed in line with your attack surface.

We design network architecture where trust is never assumed, always verified and continuously monitored. The identity of devices, users, data, and assets are the new perimeters, so control is enforced as close to these as possible. 

You’ll be able to give your employees the freedom to work how they want, where they want, and on whatever device.

Combine industry-leading cloud security solutions with our managed services and security consulting. 

What is managed cloud security?

Secure every connection while cutting cost and complexity.

Today’s agile working means your traditional security perimeter is no longer a fixed boundary, which means you may now have critical security gaps in your infrastructure. From branch locations to remote employees, the number of potential weak points has grown significantly – and it’s these weak points that hackers are likely to exploit.  To stay protected in this new threat environment you need a consistent, cloud-based security setup that removes the hassle of buying and maintaining hardware, and plugs security gaps to protect all your users, from any location.

Our managed cloud security offering combines leading security solutions with managed services and consulting to do just that, partnering with world-class vendors - like Zscaler, Cisco, Palo Alto and McAfee - for cutting-edge solutions that use the latest technology.

Our managed cloud solution is a cloud-based internet security approach that helps improve your overall security posture. It adds an extra layer of defence-in-depth for those users and systems that are already secured and extends the security perimeter for those users who are outside and unprotected.

Managed Cloud Security offers cloud-based internet security platforms that provide services, such as real-time scanning and filtering of your users’ web traffic to proactively block known threats before they enter your network.

We have a range of services which include carrier-grade secure internet, advanced persistent threat (APT) protection, data loss prevention (DLP) and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). These are all without the need for on-premises hardware, appliances, or software.

Benefits:

  • Fast and reliable cloud infrastructure, with global security nodes providing minimal latency when accessing cloud-based applications
  • World-class graded managed service to offer you the flexibility you need
  • A single central portal where you can easily manage internet policies and reporting for all global users and sites
  • The ability to choose what security features you need - either as standalone items or as bundled packages
  • Proxy-based visibility and control over web traffic with deep awareness of cloud activity and data interactions (in transit)
  • The ability to monitor and secure cloud service usage by employees, to quickly identify and remediate threats
  • Comprehensive data protection at all endpoints
  • The foundation for consistent cloud-delivered security for all users and locations with a next generation firewall in the cloud

Understand and Quantify your cyber security Risk in real time. 

Management of cyber security risks is a major board issue. The World Economic Forum has consistently put the item very high on its list of business risks. What we also see is that many clients struggle to know how to manage risk consistently across their organisation, across technology, across different disciplines within their environments. And what we've also noticed from our own research is that they consistently overestimate how well they're doing compared to the results in terms of cyber security breaches.

We'll help you to: 

  • Have a consistent risk score across your whole organisation
  • Relate the risk identified in your reviews to a specific financial cost
  • Receive real time updates based on your infrastructure and related external threat intelligence
  • Understand the impact to your risk from the organisations within your supply chain
  • Incorporate best practices and guidance from standards bodies and risk frameworks
  • Be guided through the process by experienced practitioners in risk modelling and review
